H.I.S. Ministries February 2015 Newsletter, covering January 2015
This New Year has begun with many end time signs clearly visible to Bible students, while the rest of the world doesn’t seem to notice anything. Times have not changed much in that respect from the time when Jesus walked on the earth: Jesus had just fed the five thousand, walked on water, healed multitudes of sick at the shores of the Sea of Galilee (Matthew 14), when the religious leaders came to Him asking for a sign from heaven to determine if He was from God! Jesus marveled, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather: for sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but can you not discern the signs of the times.” (Matt. 16:1-3. NKJV) What were these “signs of the times”? The last of the prophets, John the Baptist (Matt. 11:13), had just before this announced that the Messiah had come, and that He was going to perform miracles, things that no man had ever done before. He did the signs of the prophesied Messiah in the presence of them, and in spite of undeniable evidence, they had no sense to see that. Israel as a nation, because of their religious leaders’ unbelief, missed Messiah’s first coming, and rejected their Messiah, Jesus. There are even more prophesies in the Bible concerning His Second coming than for His First Coming. Are we missing them now as they did 2000 years ago? Please read Paul’s warning about that in Acts 13:15-41. We must know what God has said to us about Himself, and what He is going to do in the future. Paul wrote to Timothy about coming perilous times (2 Tim. 3) and that the only way to “make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” is to know the scriptures (3:15). Paul continued, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (3:16.) What we are seeing now, may indeed be our “time of the signs”. We have seen false prophets and teachers (exactly as Peter wrote in 2 Peter 2:1-3) in recent years making a mockery of true prophesies about the Second Coming of the Lord by claiming to know the day and hour of Jesus’ return, even though we are told that NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY NOR THE HOUR (Matt. 24:36). When it did not happen as they had said, those weak in faith lost what little faith they had had. Peter had warned about that, saying that then“…there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, ‘where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of…” (2 Pet. 3:3-5, KJV.) When Jesus’ disciples asked Him what will be the sign of His coming and the end of the world, the first thing Jesus mentioned was deception. (Matt. 24:4.) Satan is a deceiver, and because there are true signs of the Lord’s Second Coming, he will twist and falsify them till people do not believe the true signs, even when they are clearly in front of them. One of the many deceptions that some Christian churches have fallen for is Spiritual Formation movement which is promising that they can hear the voice of God by using mystical eastern style prayer-techniques, called also contemplative or centering prayer. This practice brings the same results as TM or Transcendental Meditation, which attracts demonic spirits instead. Another popular practice world-wide is yoga that in reality is a “signaled prayer to Hindu gods”, as Hindu-gurus openly are admitting that it is. We also see the prophesied One World Government fast approaching along with One World Religion. Another end-time sign is the attempt to join Christianity with Islam, calling it “Chrislam”. [A search for Chrislam on the Internet reveals that there already are many well-known pastors and churches that promote Chrislam!] Many in ignorance assume that God of the Bible and Allah are one and the same! Not even close! Allah is the moon-god chosen by Mohammed from among 360 gods to become Islam’s only god. Jesus in Islam is called Isa, a prophet of Allah, but NOT the Son of God, “for Allah does not have a son”, says the Koran. Islam is at this time expecting its coming Mahdi, 12th imam, that fits exactly the biblical prophecies of an Anti-Christ. Muslims even site Rev. 6:2 for Mahdi’s coming… The spread of Islam around the entire world has already reached the major religion-status with 1.7 Billion followers. However Islam is more of a political ideology than religion. Islam means “submission” –and that is what it is demanding from people. Most of the non-Muslim world was grieved just this January by the murders of 17 innocent people in Paris, France. [Isn’t it odd that when Muslim terrorists kill people in Europe, the world unites against Muslims, as we saw in Paris where over 40 world leaders with millions of people opposing Islam’s terrorism marched, but when Muslim terrorists kill people in Israel, the world unites against Israel?] These cold-hearted Muslim murderers have finally awakened and exposed the world to what we are up against – we are facing a coming Islamic domination. We hear about ISIS in the news daily. They fully expect the world becoming Islamic and under Sharia law. Just this past year hundreds of soldiers (Syrian, Lebanese and Kurds) were beheaded by the Islamic State (ISIS), as were also three Americans and British humanitarian workers, and they have been threatening to behead 2 Japanese men unless Japan pays 200 million dollars in ransom. One of them was already beheaded 1/24/15. These are not war killings, but innocent humans killed or to be killed to appease Allah and Mohammed. The Koran, their holy scripture, calls for beheadings. “So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them…” (Surah 47:4) “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, so strike them upon their necks…” (Surah 8:12.) In the Koran there are more than hundred commands to kill Christians and Jews. It is easy to push Satanically blinded Muslim youth that have no assets and no future, into doing what to us is unthinkable. To them becoming a “martyr” by killing Christians and Jews is the only way to “Paradise”, and at the same time becoming a hero to their families. They do it for Satan who hates the Jews who are God’s chosen nation. Anti-Semitism has always been Satanic. Satan hates also Christians, for they too are God’s people, born of the Spirit of God. Christianity is spread through sharing the Good News of a loving God who sent His Son as the Savior paying for our sins and giving eternal life to all who simply believe on Him. Islam is spread by the sword: convert of die. In Nigeria Boko Haram, just 2 months ago, killed over 2000 Christians, and the world did nothing! The Bible tells us that after the Church Age ends in Rapture, which can happen at any time, beheadings are how the believers in the Lord will die during the future 7-year Tribulation. We can easily see who the killers are during that time. We must be very close to that time for we hear of Islamic beheadings almost weekly already. “…I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ ” (Rev. 6:9-10, NKJV.) “…I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus, and for the Word of God, who had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands…” (Rev. 20:4, NKJV.) There are already over 50 million Muslims living in Europe today. We read and hear of troubles resulting from large Muslim populations in England, France, Belgium, Holland and Sweden. [In Belgium # 1 baby name during the last 4 years has been Mohammed, and 40% of the school children there are Muslim.] Europe is in a mess that their liberal governments have created by allowing Muslim immigration without understanding Islam and that the purpose of Islam is to invade.] American Muslim population is growing fast also. It is reported that there are already over 8 million Muslims in USA. Even in Salt Lake City, Utah, there are five Mosques, and West Valley City, Utah, has a Mosque that is the largest, so far, in the Western USA. Muslims do not assimilate into existing cultures – they bring their own and as soon as they have enough of them in a given area, they segregate themselves, as they have already done in Dearborn, Michigan and Newark, New Jersey, where they practice Sharia-law, totally in opposition to the Constitution. Promoters of Islam here in USA are saying that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that they oppose killings done by ISIS and other jihadists. However, Islam is the major religion in Iran, and leaders there are preaching the same message “death to Jews and Israel and USA”. Becoming a Christian is punishable by death in all Islamic states. “Imams” in their mosques world-over are preaching hate and jihad. What we are seeing taking place in the world today are signs of the times that the Word of God has told us, if we only open our eyes to see. God is setting the stage for the Tribulation events to begin soon, and that happens when Israel is attacked from all sides. Israel is surrounded by Islamic nations. All countries uniting against Israel are Islamic – only exception is Russia, but even her population is also largely Muslim. However, Israel will not be totally defeated. (1 Sam. 12:22.) Israel has to be there for the Lord to come and rule from Jerusalem. This all looks scary, but we know that God wins. The Word says so. We are commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Ps. 122:6.) “Even so, come Lord Jesus.” (Rev. 22:20.)
